EA Originals and Surgent Studios have announced that Tales of Kenzera: ZAU is coming to Nintendo Switch next month.

After a grieving boy reads a Bantu tale written by his late father, you will have the chance to adventure into the beautiful yet treacherous lands of Kenzera as a young shaman called Zau who makes a bargain with the God of Death.

Advancing into Kenzera, its unknown mythological lands were once bursting with life but are now home to lost ancestral spirits. Three mighty beings lie between you and your goal, fearsome in their strength and yet somehow strangely familiar.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Become the Warrior Shaman: Embark on a poignant single-player story shaped by actor Abubakar Salim’s own experience with grief, discovering how love gives us the courage to press on after devastating loss. As Zau, you must face your own emotions to become a worthy Nganga: a spiritual healer.
  • The Dance of the Sun and Moon Masks: Wield cosmic powers from the Sun and the Moon to defeat restless spirits in rhythmic combat, from ordinary warriors to the mighty Impundulu or GaGorib. Manipulate time and crystallize enemies using the power of the Moon mask or launch fiery spears with the Sun Mask, all in meticulously hand-crafted animations.
  • Set Foot In A Mystical Realm: Discover a universe inspired by Bantu tales, rich with untold lore of chaos and order, memories of ancient shamans, sacred spirits and fascinating creatures. Journey through mystical 2.5D realms awash with colour and depth, emboldened by multi-award-winning composer Nainita Desai’s enchanting original score.

Tales of Kenzera: ZAU will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 23 April 2024.
